The Housing Management Service has recently been reviewed and as a forward thinking organisation, we are eager to adapt to the changes in the way our residents want to access our housing services.
Housing is a critical priority for us at Hackney. Ensuring the very highest standards of housing management across our 30,000 council homes is paramount. As a Council with a strong track record of improvement, the return of our ALMO provided us with the opportunity to set a new vision, purpose and pace for Housing Management.
The review has enabled us to change how we deliver our Housing Management service and as a result, we are looking for a talented Housing Officer who will embrace new ways of working post covid, delivering more of our services from estates, residents homes and local community halls.
As a Housing Officer you will deliver a flexible service, equipped with mobile technology to be visible and accessible to our tenants and leaseholders. We want individuals who are able to find creative and innovative ways of tackling local problems and who can demonstrate a passion for customer service and resident engagement and adopting the key principles of Hackney Council
Working in one of our Housing Management Teams, you will be responsible for leading all matters to do with the management of the estate including estate inspections, attending tenant and resident association meetings, investigating complaints and dealing with tenancy related issues including low level anti-social behaviour.
To be successful in this exciting role you will ideally have experience of Housing Management but not absolutely necessary, have excellent written and verbal communication skills, be self-motivated and be computer literate.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
